Football / Re: U.S. U-17 women beat Haiti 9-0, then offer hugs

Well Fellas I appreciate your confidence in me as a potential coach that can get it done. But as we all know there are many gifted coaches out there with ties to Trini. I will make my point and move on because I have come to the conclusion that triples is a brother who just will never get it. With the information i am privy to his arguments are quite arsenine. I am getting ready to return to the US after spending the past week on the campus of the Spanish Federation. As I spent time with some of the best coaches in La Liga from Real Madrid and Getafe just to name a few, and the Spanish national team I realize how far behind we are in the US and even further behind in Trinidad. As i watched their women's coaches worked with their full and youth national teams I couldn't help but feel we could be further ahead as a US national youth team program.Triples where was the rest of the world when US won the world cup in 1999. In the same breath where were the Costa Ricans, Mexican and Canadian and Trinidad youth Women's national teams in 1999. The first three have made strides and the Trini is still where they were for the most part. As i listened to the Spanish coaches I heard about their limitations but I also heard about focusing on the things they have control over. I would agree that many of the Caribbean women's team are behind. my question to you is are they doing the very best to maximise what they have control over. If they have taken the route trini has taken then I would say no. The last time I checked Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica are in the CONCACAF. I know they make the most of of what they have and they have experienced many successes. In due time if the other countries in the Caribbean follow suit they will have their day in the sun. Could you imagine where football would be today if the regions of the world too your advice.

I would love to stay and chat with you brother but I will only be wasting my time. I have a plane to catch and some serious work to attend to. We just got our ass kicked by Canada and for the first time we have not qualified for a women's youth world cup. It is my hope that this is a wake cup call for our federation. The US are no longer the big dogs at the youth levels. I am happy for those CONCACAF teams that are headed to the World Cup. I am glad there federations didn't take your approach many years ago when it seemed like the most logical thing to do.I wish you all the best brother. I will try my best to stay away from you. I have players to identify and develop moving forward. Hopefully one day you will realize that your argument is baseless.

Let me share a little secret with you. I wish we had some of the players Trini have in our program here in the US. The women's team with strong men's programs are the ones who are making strides in women's football right now. When you have a minute check that out. They mimic the men and they assume some of their characteristics. We have always depended on structure/organization, speed and athleticism and from time to time we develop a couple special players who can get it done. Some of these Trini girls are so game savvy and technically gifted. I pray and hope that you are one of a kind. Your way of thinking will just destroy the women's game. You know what lets take your advice brakes the Caribbean teams from getting 10 in CONCACAF so they could get 15 in the world cup.

I wish you well Triples

Whey meh boy triples on this one. I just land in Spain to complete an international mini course and get this one. This one will hurt for a long time. I keep saying we have some work to do. We can allow this to fester or use it as  spring board to clean up some of our deficiencies. A job well done Canada for hanging in there and getting the business done. All the best in the finals

If all yuh only know the bacchanal this cause. They spend one set of money on visas to take the team to Puerto Rico. They didn't  even knowing they were hosting the tournament. What kinda ah Jackassness is that. To the point that it was stated in the news paper article. I couldn't believe it made the news paper after this occurred last week. This even cause one of the members to lose her American visas so now she stuck Trinidad. Once again meh boy Triples. When you focus on the controlables these dumb things don't happen. We real jokie yes

Wow Andre Desantos great insight as a young warrior. The insight of the game you speak of when we played CI is spot on. As I sat and watched the game I too wondered why they were playing with such a high restraining line with no pressure on the ball. On the corner kicks I was also wondering why they sent 1 defender against 2 or sometimes they didn't get their quick enough. Meh boy triples try to down play my statement of focus on what you have control over. Even though it was not my intent at the time to show up the coaching I had seen to date. i am sure the 13 they got from us could have been prevented. I will make a case using your simple analysis. If I was coaching CI which I am not(so relax triples) I would have played with a low restraining line 15 yards from the 18 yard box. instead of pushing up as high as they did which made it easy for us to find seams to either play balls through or to initiate runs through to receive passes. At the same time they were not compact enough when they were defending. I would have made sure of that as well. Then to top it off I would have talked to them about their support around the ball to maintain possession. Because they were coughing up the ball quite easy which sustained our attacks.

Triples when you have a minute take a peek at the recent CONCACAF U-20 Qualifiers. These are just some of the things that can happen when you FOCUS ON THE THINGS YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER. USA, MEXICO AND COSTA RICA qualified for the U-2O World cup. Canada was knocked out after being one of the qualifiers for the previous U-20 World Cup. Thank God these teams didn't take your defeatest approach that they could not compete against or beat the US. Our organization and athleticism was the difference at this event. Mexico and Costa were formidable opponents. Some of these games were so close and it was clear that they were better than us in many areas of the game even though we won the event.

Don't try and flip the switch on what I was referring to as well trying to make it look as though I was blaming every Carribean coach and player. When I first referred to the statement "focus on the things you have control over" I was actually giving props to the other CONCACAF countries like Costa Rica, Mexico and Canada. These are countries that have been trying to maximize the most of what they have and as a result they have been experiencing some success not just in CONCACAF but on the world stage. Some of these young soccer nations just need to make sure that they are doing the very best job with what they have available to them.  

Canada was the reigning CONCACAF champions after defeating the US up until this year. There was a time when the US youth teams would blow out Canada and Mexico on CONSISTENT BASIS. They have since closed the gap. With money and great numbers to draw from you still need quality coaches to work with them and you still need to put a plan in place. You keep making the point about numbers and money being that thing that makes the US youth national teams so powerful. Even though they are definitely factors you just don't know the planning, organization and preparation that goes into the product we put on the field.

Just to get players ready to play in Trini in 2008 for the U17 World Cup qualifiers we took potential players for the national team to various tours in the Caribbean three years prior to get them acclimatized. Just to put on a 7 day summer camp for some of our elite players in July. The planning and preparation is done 8 months in advance. You should know that players are produced in cycles. Each country over time will have their moments as they continue to develop their young players. With money and great numbers to draw from you still need quality coaches to work with them and you still need to put a plan in place. You need to set realistic goals etc.

One of our ODP teams is in Russia right now. Its a tournament we have never won or made it to the finals and yet we send a team there each time. We get so much out of the event which we then take and use to make our present and future players better and ready for the full national team. Because brother at the end of the day all these youth teams are there to help produce payers for their respective senior national teams.

Triples first to begin the US national youth teams are not going anywhere. We are here to stay until the rest of the CONCACAF countries have stepped up their games like Mexico, Canada and now Costa Rica after their recent showing in the U-20 Concacaf qualifiers. You seem to think you know what you are talking about so please remind me where the players on the recent U-20 teams from Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica are from. Let me save you some research. I already know that quite a bit of them are attending Universities here in the US. Also what would the other teams from Europe, Asia and South America be today if they took your approach of feeling that they could not defeat the mighty US womens team. The last time I checked some of these teams have since caught up and surpass some of our youth nationals team on the World stage. As for your GK comment, I hate to burst your bubble on your GK statistics. However, we have been implementing a program here in the US with our ODP and national team players where we have been developing field players into GK;s when we see the need to. So it may just be an idea for Marlon and his staff to think about. I will end by saying this. One of the things we share with our youth national team players all the time is to focus on the controllables.So the day Trini does that the women's teams will be fine. There is still player development, preparation and planning and putting the right things in place to make it happen. When your pool is not as great as some of the other pools in the world. You need to make sure you are focusing on the things you have control over.

Trini massive I could not disagree with you more. Let me give you some insight into our philosophy with our teams that I don't expect you to agree with. It truly begins with a certain level of respect. We prepare for each opponent and try to play hard every minute of the game because we respect our opponents. We don't take our opponents lightly. These girls and our staff would have been disrespecting the Haitians if we played a man down or tried to score off of a headed a cross or volley or some other dumb situation I often see. Even if they tried to keep the ball in our half of the field or their half half of the field making them chase would have been very been disrespectful. So to deal with it knowing what Haiti just wen through we still had to play the game.We still prepared the players in the best way we could have to compete in the game. Then when it was ll said and done, the kids were able to let down their guard and show their emotions. I see nothing wrong with this. If we had a chance to do it all over again, we would do it the same way

So you want to know what men have done lets see Try reaching out and talking to everyone involved in trini football for the past 10 years. I wouldn't bother share emails I have in my possession right now. Obviously there are a lot of things you are not aware of. So all men asking is until you know it might just be an good idea to let meh speak their mind. As for me on  personal level. I gave up a long time ago. After you done reading this post. Walk outside and try talking to the wind and let me know how much response you get.

This individual talk like a real rook deh. If he only know what we know. Case in point: When a coach of our national team needed Pellers presence to point out that we need to focus more on intensity of training and games after he had been a part of many events with the women's national teams to know that it is clear that we joking. I guess Trini only have two female coaches thus the reason we keep going back into the same well. Elan u know what you are talking about. i am not going to touch it to help build your case though. I am tired dealing with this. Don't want to sound like a broken record

I will never forget a conversation I was a part of with Carlos Alberto Pareirra the former Brazilian coach a few years ago at a coaches convention. It forever changed my outlook on Brazilian football. We have a skewed view of football that entails possessing the ball and moving it around as the way to go. I was once on that train and use to be very frustrated watching some teams out possess Brazil even though they would still win the game. I remember asking him a question pertaining to this. To summarize his thoughts based on his philosophy of Brazilian football. The player on the ball should always be looking to score  If he can't score he must then find the next best person to score. As we continue to do this you all refer to it as ball possession. We view it as probing. Sometimes it may seem like we are literally putting a  team to sleep as we probe then we strike. When we strike it is because we finally found the opening to score. We are not concerned about a team out possession us."

At the end of the day all of us know you don't get style points in football. I understand that sometimes we all want to see ball circulation and 8,9 passes put together in the final third. The first goal against Ireland had 3-4 passes leading up to the goal. The 2nd goal had 6-7 passes leading up to the goal. There will never be another Brazilian 1982 team.Brazil football was forever changed with Pareirra leading up to the 1994 World Cup. Remember before he took over the beautiful game brought them no trophies in 5 world cups. From 1994 till 2006. How many have they won and how many finals have they played in. At the end of the day its all good. As long as they win this summer I good yes 8)

Observer ah agree with you dey. Irregardless of what he does this team will move on. It just that it too blatant with how Ronnie performing not to include him in this team. He has done well since he has been in charge. However, he better win the cup with a Ronnie and Pato less squad. Brazil will crucify him if he doesn't. The at atmosphere around here real edgy because the nation wants him in dey but they tolerating him right nw becuase the team winning. Just imagine yesterday during the game it have Brazilian folks hoping the team lose so he will relent under pressure. I like the energy and work rate he has instilled in this team. I would challenge that the line up I have provided will give any team hell in SA. The only reason I didn't put Alves in the left back spot is because I feel he ain't having that one. It would be my choice though then place Felipe Melo in the defensive mid position with Gilberto Silva  ;)

This is one of the wildest Brazilian teams I have ever seen. strikers chasing down back pass to keeper, sliding tackles all over the field. Ever chance men get they want to show Dunga how hard they working for dey pick. Just another reason TEETHS and Pato ;D cah get a call up. I guess them men have to want to run some more. As Dunga say he is not on too much big names the no name players will give him want he wants. Run till you drop. As I have always said you coach want you know and you draw from your experiences as a coach. Dunga was a hard nose lack of creativity mother*&^%er. So now he has a chance to create a team in his image and likeness.
